About a month ago I went to one of my favorite independent theaters in Westchester County – Jacob Burns Film Center. This place always plays the greatest movies – old and new. I got to see Gone With The Wind on the big screen here as well as Casablanca and an animation favorite, The Iron Giant. Plus anything new that is worth seeing (emphasis on ‘worth seeing’).
Searching for Sugar Man is a documentary about a Mexican American singer song writer from the late 60’s who totally flopped in the States even after being produced by some of the biggest names in music. Meanwhile – he becomes bigger than Elvis out in South Africa and no one in the States knows about this fame until 1995. It is a crazy story that you can’t believe is true … but you leave being happy it is.
I don’t want to say too much about it so please just go see it immediately. I honestly feel like everyone on the planet should see this.
